Tortola is the largest and most populated island of the British Virgin Islands. Local tradition recounts that Christopher Columbus named it Tortola, meaning ‘’land of the Turtle Dove’’. But Columbus named it Santa Ana. Later, the Dutch settled and called it Ter Tholen, after a coastal island forming part of the west coast of the Netherlands. When finally the British took over, they altered the name to Tortola.
